Cal Deer Association to Sponsor Sharing the Tradition Junior Deer Hunt
</td></tr></tbody></table>For the sixth straight year the California Deer Association (CDA) is sponsoring its Sharing the Tradition Junior Deer Hunt. Twenty-five junior deer hunters will have a chance to go on a free, fully-guided antlerless deer hunt on the famous Tejon Ranch. CDA is sponsoring these hunts in cooperation with Tejon Ranch, which at 270,000 acres is the largest privately owned ranch in California. Juniors and their accompanying adult will stay in one of Tejon Ranch's lodges.
Junior hunters will be selected in a free, random drawing open to any junior hunter with a 2009 California junior hunting license and an unfilled deer tag. In addition, the following sponsors will supply the 25 lucky juniors with ammunition from Federal Premium Ammunition and Barnes Bullets, binoculars from Alpen Optics, and hunting gear from Hunter's Specialties and Birchwood Casey.
A total of 90 juniors have already participated in the prior year hunts. Over 90% of them had never taken a deer before. Their success rate for these hunts has been an unbelievable 98.8%.
Entry applications must be received by October 14, 2009. Hunts will take place in the second half of December.
